Resource/Book to explain Swiss taxes

Hi All,

My boss has told me about a book which explains the swiss tax system, however, he is German as is the book. Is there any such resource in English? I have just received a pension statement and would like to understand this and the tax system here in more detail.

Of course, there are many cantons with different taxes which change often, but if a book exists in German there must hopefully be something English speaking expats can also access? Any experience or advice on the best resource gratefully received.

I am experienced in finance, so this resource would not need to be in layman's terms especially.

Thanks in advance!

If you want info on your pension statement why not contact the company who deals with your pension. Not sure if a book would exist offering you all info on all forms of tax but most info can also be found onlone and in english

Re: Resource/Book to explain Swiss taxes

About 45% of your taxes go to your town, 45% to the canton and 10 % to the federal government, and there are therefore variations between regions.

A general book in English would be "Living & Working in Switzerland" by David Hampshire http://www.amazon.de/Living-Working-...sr=1-2-catcorr it is also available in UK

The book often has fresh editions to keep up with the new laws, so better to buy a newer edition.
